I grew up in New York but have been living in Los Angeles for the past 10 years. I love it here--where else can you live in a major city and walk your dog on a dirt road? I've got two little boys 1.5 and 4, and a very kind husband. I'm a reporter for the Los Angeles Times, writing about robots and space and viral YouTube videos. I like gardens and new places, dumplings and cocktails. I'm currently reading anything I can get my hands on by Nora Ephron.
